We sought to investigate social differences in Swedish infant mortality by cause of death.
All live single births in Sweden between 1983 and 1986 to mothers 15 to 44 years old with Nordic citizenship were studied.
The causes of death were classified into six major groups.
Mother's education was used as a social indicator.
Logistic regression analysis was used with identical models for all groups of causes of death.
